Mapping information is essential for the deployment or management of a network. ATDI has accumulated a comprehensive catalogue of worldwide cartographic data stored on the company’s high-capacity servers.

Multi-Layered Frequency Assignment Constraints

ATDI can produce or convert any type of map data including digital reference mapping (maps, satellite photos, aerial images), land occupancy or Digital Elevation Models (DEM).

System integration & Management solutions
ATDI has developed complete networking, sharing and management solutions for mapping information. Predominantly large volumes of data, in different coordinate reference systems, need to be manipulated to process geographic information. Intranet and internet solutions can make  geographic data easily accessible to users, while performing complex calculations where necessary.

Acquiring data
Expert cartographers can assist customers acquire and validate raw data. Once the quality of the data has been confirmed, the acquisition is swift. The aerial photos, ground control points, satellite images and maps are then processed and formatted for customers. ATDI has developed a network of local cartographic partners, and is official partner of the French National Geographic Institute (IGN) and the UK Ordnance Survey.

Sourcing of existing data
Skilled professionals have accrued extensive experience in sourcing existing cartographic data. Through ATDI’s channel partners, the company can easily identify existing data sets and validate their quality.

Aside from developing software to create the digital images and layers needed for radio planning, ATDI possesses impressive production capabilities. ATDI operates a high-resolution laboratory, with extensive production capabilities in digital stereo restitution and high resolution digital imaging.


• Sourcing data
• Data conversion
• Multi-spectral satellite imagery for clutter extraction (Landsat7, SPOT, etc.)
• Stereoscopic aerial photography for clutter and building height extraction (USGS National Aerial Photography Program, Canadian National Air Photo Library, etc.)
• Digitally scanned paper maps for clutter extraction and production of terrain models (topographic maps, etc.).


ICS map server is a GIS management tool which supports ICS telecom. ICS map server converts public or private source raster and vector-based GIS information into ATDI’s proprietary cartographic formats.

ICS online provides a simple gateway to customers’ network data, enabling information to be shared between the network design team and marketing, sales,  customer service centre and the installation teams.
